Top 10: Highest Individual Scores against Bangladesh in ODI

Bangladesh may have started slowly upon their entry into the cricketing world towards the end of the last century, but it has been on the rise in the last decade or so, especially in limited-overs cricket.

They have earned some key victories in this phase against the top sides of the world, more so in their home conditions. And they are turning out to be a force to be reckoned with in the Asian subcontinent.

Their spin bowling attack is a real threat and not that easy to put away, as is Bangladesh’s ever-improving pace arsenal. So there is always a challenge for batters to put up runs against Bangladesh, and we will see the players who have overcome those and come out with flying colours.

Key insights from the above stats

13: Number of players to have scored 150 or more against Bangladesh in an ODI innings. Apart from the 10 mentioned here, Andrew Strauss of England, Herschelle Gibbs of South Africa, and Jason Roy are the other batters to have crossed that particular landmark.

88: The number of batters in the One Day International cricket to have registered a century in this format against the Bangladeshi team.

2: The number of times a player from Australia, South Africa, and India made it to the list.

1: Only one instance where a batsman has amassed 200 or more in an innings against Bangladesh in ODI cricket, and the batter to do so is India’s Ishan Kishan. The wicketkeeper, playing just his first ODI against the Bangla Tigers, scored a scintillating century and then converted the same into an extraordinary double century at Chattogram in December 2022. He eventually made 210 from just 131 balls, resulting in India piling up a huge 409/8 on the board, and India went on to win the contest.

175: The other Indian player who features on the list is the former opener, Virender Sehwag, thanks to his stunning onslaught in India’s opening match of the ICC World Cup 2011 against Bangladesh at Mirpur. He made 175 in that game, helping India amass 370 on the board and win the game by 87 runs. This is also the highest-ever score by a batter against Bangladesh in a World Cup clash.

194: Charles Coventry’s score against Bangladesh back in a 2009 ODI game at Bulawayo is the highest-ever score by a Zimbabwe batter in the format. It also remains the highest score by a batsman coming in a losing cause in ODIs. Nevertheless, the marathon knock of Charles included 7 sixes and remains one of the best ever by a batter from his nation.

185: Shane Watson’s knock was a literal massacre of Bangladesh bowlers as the former opener pummeled 185 runs in just 96 balls in his team’s chase of 231 at Mirpur. His knock was a pure exhibition of six-hitting, as the all-rounder struck a whopping 15 maximums as Australia rode home in just 26 overs. This remains the highest score by an Australian batter in the ODI format.

166: The other Australian on the list is yet another opener, David Warner, who has scored the most 150-plus scores in ODIs for his country. One of the scores he made was in the ICC Cricket World Cup game at Nottingham against Bangladesh in the 2019 edition. Though not fast by Warner’s standards, it powered Australia to a massive score of 381, resulting in a 48-run win for the team.

176: AB de Villiers played one of his usual special ODI knocks at Paarl in 2017, and it came at the expense of the hapless Bangladeshi bowlers. Coming to bat at No. 4, Mr. 360, as he is called, brought up his century in just 68 balls and then went on to accumulate the next 76 in only 36 balls as SA piled up a massive 353 runs on the board.

168: The other South African on the list is Quinton de Kock with his knock of 168, which came just a game prior to de Villiers’ whirlwind knock. de Kock displayed his usual flair in one of his best ODI innings, as his unbeaten 168 at Kimberly helped the home team register a 10-wicket win over the visiting Bangladeshi team in their pursuit of 279 runs.

156: This is the second-highest score by a Scotland player in ODIs, and it came against the Bangladesh team in a 2015 CWC group game fixture at Nelson in Australia. Kyle Coetzer became the owner of this record when he made a scintillating 156 off 134. Albeit it came in a losing cause, it was an inning to remember for Scotland as it was a World Cup game against a full-member team.

161: In the same edition of the World Cup, yet another big score was achieved by a batter against Bangladesh, and this time it was from the bat of their familiar foe, Tillakaratne Dilshan, who made an unbeaten 161 at the MCG. This six-less knock included 22 boundaries and came in 145 balls as SL piled up 332 runs, batting first. This incredible knock earned them a 92-run win over their Asian rivals.

169: Last but not least, the list gets completed with Denesh Ramdin’s stunning display of hitting at Basseterre in an ODI bilateral game in 2014. The West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman stood tall as he hit one of his 2 ODI tons and registered his highest ODI score. The Windies put a huge 338 on the board thanks to Ramdin and Bravo’s highest partnership for the 3rd wicket and they defended rather easily, thus completing a whitewash over Bangladesh.
